Since moving from Palermo to Juventus in 2015, Paulo Dybala has quickly established himself as a fan favorite for the black and white crowd. With his outstanding technical note and his great goals, the Argentine has earned the iconic jersey with the number 10.
However, La Joya has had a difficult campaign behind them, marked by injuries and transfer rumors. The 28-year-old is hoping to make up for last season’s deficits with a major campaign while everyone at the club waits for him to sign a contract extension.
Sami Khedira, for his part, played for Juventus Turin between 2015 and 2021 before sealing a transfer to Hertha Berlin at the beginning of the year and finally retiring after a short stay in the German capital.
The 2014 world champion said Dybala was putting too much pressure on himself and gave some advice to his former teammate while saying the club needed to protect him on the pitch.
“Paulo needs a bodyguard on the field who can protect him. He suffered from too many injuries and too many problems outside of football, too many people were talking around him, ”the former Real Madrid man said in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport above ilBianconero.
“Instead, he has to stay focused and take care of his body, and he seems to be better in that regard,” added Khedira.
“Paulo knows how to score dream goals, he has a unique talent, but for me he puts too much pressure on himself. He thinks he has to do everything from passing to creating opportunities to becoming a leader. I remember him in the 2017 Champions League final, he didn’t play freely.
